    Should you have the choice

    Euthanasia

    If you had a incurable disease, that would lead to your death,do you think that you should have the right to choose, when you leave this world.?

    Personally i think yes you should have the choice, with discussing and making a decision with you family.

    Why Govts around the world wish to prolong the suffering of someone is beyond me, just for example here in the UK healthcare is free, that time and money could be spent, on more needy persons.

    In the absence of any sudden road accident or whatever I will be checking out at a time and place of my choosing once I have nothing else to do and something grim is on the horizon (cancer/other terminal/unbearable condition). No idea what the big deal is all about with suicide being taboo. Civilised option if you ask me.

    would do the same, though imagine if you had a family, and you had a life insurance policy, your family loses it.

    Thats another thing. I want to try meth amphetamine, crack cocaine and heroin once I am on the home straight. Be nice to try them once it is too late to fuck up your entire life. Hope there is a dealer in the old folks home.

    Why wait until you're approaching death? Hardly the best time for new experiences.

    You just have to be a bit more creative.

    Risks. Addiction. Criminal charges. I don't now anybody who does drugs and I am not even sure how to start finding out how to buy them.

    Also I am only mildly interested in trying them so I don't think the benefits outweigh the risks.

    Would be a bummer though if it turned out to be a nirvana like experience which I had been missing out on all my life. Although thinking like that would be a bit of a glass is half empty attitude when I could be thankful that I had not missed out completely.

    I think people have a twofold problem with euthanasia :
    Those sometimes religious types who think it's morally wrong for a person to take their own life.
    And those who are worried that other people may take a life....for instance greedy relatives signing a 'death permission' for a deteriorating and possibly semi-conscious old person.

    Though in ENT's case it should be done out of pity

    Hate to disappoint you but if it went to OCR exam board, it was probably marked by a supply teacher in Doncaster.

    Meth wouldn't be too hard to find. Probably start with your local brothel. All a good laugh until you go totally mad and your teeth fall out.

    why is that disappointing?

    can you imagine how bad it would be if the supply teacher was in Bournemouth

    Of course you should have a choice.

    6 months of chemo, not remembering who your children are and not knowing when you need a piss -

    or

    The best send off any human could want.

    No Brainer?

    Fuck yeah!

    A systematic extermination process would be considerably beneficial for the earth at large, since we [as contemporary life-forms] do our upmost to fuck things up.

    People that have religious beliefs that promise reincarnation or an afterlife are safe in the knowledge that they will be re-united with their loved ones.
    Problem is only an atheist can suicide without built in penalty clause.

    I'm totally pro-euthanasia. Watch someone you care about suffer with a terminal illness, racked with pain, drugged up to the eyeballs, until the end comes. How many times do we hear of someone's passing being a 'blessed release' ? Not for me and if that makes me a coward so be it. Hell, you wouldn't let a dog suffer in agony, you would do the kind thing - so what's the big difference?

    Yes, you should have the choice. Actually you do have the choice. Millions of people take their own lives every year, and that is nothing to do with the big nose of the law.

    ^ exactly; it is only the few poor people that let themselves become totally dependent on others that cannot take a few pills and a bottle of Brandy

    but even those should have the choice and be helped

    Biggest fear is that many people would feel pressured to off themselves. Older parents who feel a burden, people who could have several years of productive life but are depressed.

    Me I am shit scared of being in abed dyeing in front of people. Almost drowned once that was not nice. I know many terminal patience have a morphine drip thingy. You can push that as many times as you like?

    Crap I hope not to have to face that for a while.

    The last thing a drowning man does is take a breath for life.
